[SOLVED] Front panel headphone not working on Intel onboard sound card

Just installed the Arch Linux on my old machine. Everything works fine except for the front panel headphone.
The back panel headphone works fine.

 grep Codec /proc/asound/card0/code* 

produce the output

Codec: VIA VT1708S

Following the guide from the https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=187828 I will post the related command output as follow:

I also find there is no output sound device in the Gnome setting/sound panel.
What's the problem?

Re: [SOLVED] Front panel headphone not working on Intel onboard sound card

Nothing really useful in these outputs

sudo fuser -v /dev/snd/*
amixer -c0
pacmd list-cards
pacmd list-sinks

would give more relevant insight

Re: [SOLVED] Front panel headphone not working on Intel onboard sound card

That's better, I assume you had the headphones plugged in during execution of these commands? Maybe your jack detection is flaky, try

pacmd set-sink-port alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo analog-output-headphones

ideally that should be it and it works. if it doesn't, go into

alsamixer -c0

and unmute (by pressing M) the headphone control and up the volume and maybe the lineout control, if that didn't help already try if disabling Auto-Mute helps and the last suggestion in this chain, maybe Enabling 'Independent HP' might be the magic bullet. If none of these helped we are in a bit of a more dire situation, but we can look into that case when the need arises.
